Openreach is embarking on another set of trials to help it develop the skills to use different techniques to deploy full fibre and at the same time reduce the costs and time involved making an ambition to reach 15 million premises with full fibre by the mid 2020's more likely. Today sees a list of 13 villages and market towns announced that are part of a 50,000 premises FTTP trial.

From our exchange database this list comprises some 38,000 premises, so it looks possible that maybe a few more villages will be added as the trial progresses.

In recent years we’ve been extending our full fibre network into rural areas – mostly in partnership with local authorities and Government - but the economics are clearly challenging and we want to do more. We know that around 10% of the country will need to the support of public subsidy, but these trials will help us test a bunch of new techniques that could help us in other rural areas.

The trials will also give us a much clearer picture of what the technical challenges in these kinds of rural areas are. We hope they’ll go a long way towards developing the tools, skills and innovations required to make sure that nobody’s left behind in the full fibre future.
